Megan Fox And Mike Tyson Are Encouraging Others To Learn English

Jan 23, 2012 08:20 AM

Megan Fox and Mike Tyson are showing that they have a sense of humor in a new commercial to promote Brazilian-based language school CCAA. Random!

The ad, filmed in Oxnard, California, shows two guys who end up on a remote island after a plane crash ... only to encounter the gorgeous Ms. Fox and the words, "Welcome to Megan Fox Island." Then later on, the non-English speaking guys encounter Mr. Tyson ... and the words "Welcome to Mike Tyson Island." The concept is pretty eye-catching!

We'd prefer being stranded ... surrounded by thousands of Megans. Just saying.

The Hangover, Part II Release Could Be Delayed Due To Tattoo Lawsuit

May 23, 2011 02:02 PM


Oh no, say it ain't so!?

The release of the highly-anticipated sequel to The Hangover could be delayed because Mike Tyson's tattoo artist is suing Warner Brothers for using what he claims is the same tattoo Tyson has around his left eye, on Ed Helms' character.

The award-winning tattoo artist, S. Victor Whitmill, filed suit in late April against the movie studio for copyright infringement. Whitmill claims the movie studio never requested permission from him to recreate the art.

Tyson has a small role in the first film, but was not named in the lawsuit.

Warner Brothers has responded to the suit claiming that delaying the film would incur massive costs, and calling Whithill's charges a "radical claim that he is entitled, under the Copyright Act, to control the use of a tattoo that he created on the face of another human being." WB claims use of the ink job is covered under fair use law because Tyson and his tattoo are well-known in pop culture.

Mike Tyson Off The Hook For Punching Pap At LAX

Dec 31, 2009 02:24 PM

tysonoffthehook.jpgLos Angeles prosecutors decided not to file charges against Mike Tyson after he allegedly punched a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last month.

"After a full and thorough review, we've decided not to file charges against either party due to insufficient evidence," L.A. City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said Thursday.

Tyson's attorney said the paparazzi photographer "aggressively approached" the heavyweight champ, "provoked and harassed" them and was coming so close to Mike and his wife and daughter that at one point he bumped the child's stroller.

The 50 year-old pap, Tony Echevarria, denied he was being aggressive, claiming he was being "respectful."

X17 XCLUSIVE - Mike Tyson Infuriated By Lost Luggage, Pap Following Him To Bathroom

Nov 11, 2009 08:03 PM

mtyson070709.jpgX17online has spoken with an eyewitness on the scene of tonight's altercation between Mike Tyson, 43, and a videographer trying to capture the fighter on tape at LAX and here's the story we get ...

Tyson arrived at the international terminal Tom Bradley at Los Angeles International Airport. He was returning to the States after a four-date Come Back To The Fans Tour in England. Tyson's luggage was lost and he was sent to United Terminal 7 to file a report. Our source says he was with his wife Lakiha Spicer and their daughter Milan.

Our source tells X17online exclusively:

    "Mike was really getting upset the longer this paparazzo kept following him. It's a long walk from the international terminal to Terminal 7 where he was sent for his luggage and he was so mad that he had to walk there with his wife and daughter and this annoying guy following him the whole way. You could see the rage building."

A videographer named Tony (not from X17) was following Tyson throughout the ordeal. Tyson was upset about the luggage situation and was further infuriated by Tony following him.

The eye witness tells X17online Tyson went to the restroom at one point and the videographer followed him in there!

Our eyewitness says:

    "When this photographer followed Tyson into the bathroom, it was insane. You could literally see steam coming out of Mike's ears. With those tattoos on his face and that look in his eyes, it was really, really scary."

That caused the altercation and the police were called. The photographer was knocked out, we're told; but apparently it couldn't be established who threw the first punch so both Tyson and the photographer were arrested. It is unclear whether the photographer was treated for injuries or not and if so, where.

Mike Tyson has been transferred to another, yet undisclosed, police station.

The LAX police department where Tyson and Tony were first being held isn't talking at this point and the LAPD downtown isn't either.

Stay tuned ...
